Looking for Shaw relations from Bethnal Green, London around 1850

I have a diary from the late 1800s naming 8 brothers and sisters of my Great great grandfather, there must be some relatives somewhere?

I would think several hundred at least. But what is your question exactly?

You can start looking for the names at familysearch.org (free) and building up profiles here. Eventually you'll probably find some already exist on other people's trees.

You might want to tag your question with England also (some admin will probably do it for you soon anyway).
Thank you for your comments, it looks like someone tagged London and England already.

Thanks Ron,

I have these names in my family tree, it is their descendants I am looking for to expand the tree sideways. I can trace the Shaw line back to John Shaw 1781 but only have the line down to me, not his other children. I need to go to the archives and start look at the records.
